Can YourPDX testing be used for previously radiated tumors?

Yes, YourPDX can be used to test drug sensitivity for patients with previously radiated tumors, however, an exception is if you recently have had radiation treatments at the site from which a fresh tissue biopsy needs to be taken (within 10 weeks). Radiated tumor tissue will rarely engraft in mice.1
